Who really matters most...

TGIT... Thank God It's Today Volume #388 - April 27th, 2015. By Barrt Gottlieb Who really matters... Take this quiz
Don't bother getting a pen and paper. Read the questions and if you can't
answer them, just keep going.
  1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
  2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.
  3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America contest.
  4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer prize.
  5. Name the last five Academy Award winners for Best Actor and Actress.
How did you do?
The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday, even though these people are no second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields.
But the applause dies, the awards tarnish, the achievements are forgotten; and the accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.
Now here's another quiz.
See how you do on this one:
  1. Name three teachers who aided your journey through school.
  2. Name three friends who helped you through a difficult time.
  3. Name five people who taught you something worthwhile.
  4. Think of a five people who have made you feel appreciated and special.
  5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.
The lesson...
The people who make a difference in your life aren't the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards.
They are the ones who care.

Remember... Every day is a gift, and the quality of your life is your gift to yourself.
